PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES – NOVEMBER 13
Fall Parent-Teacher Conferences (PTC) are scheduled for Friday, November 13 from 9-5 PM.
At PTC, parents are invited to meet with their child’s teachers to discuss student progress and goals. The time is planned to be reflective and action-oriented. Conferences can be an important part in the education process, giving parents time to ask questions and to work together with teachers.
Upper elementary and secondary students are welcome to attend conferences. They may benefit from the opportunity to discuss their progress in an open forum with teachers and parents. Lower elementary parents are asked to attend without their children to allow for the most effective time with teachers.
Registration for PTC is now open and closes on November 9. This year, parents need to log into PowerSchool to sign up for appointments. Instructions on how to register for PTC are HERE.
Thank you for your support as a parent/guardian. We look forward to meeting with you on conference day.

Spirit Week is November 16-20. Themes for the week are below:
- Monday: Pajama Day - Wear school appropriate pajamas to school!
- Tuesday: Dream Job Day - Do you want to be a doctor? Veterinarian? Musician? Dress up as you hope to be in the future.
- Wednesday: Color Day - Wear as many colors as possible, or maybe only just ONE color.
- Thursday: National Pride Day - Wear something from your country that makes you proud.
- Friday: Movie Character Day - Be your favorite movie character for the day!
If a student chooses not to dress in a theme for the day, that's no problem, but they must wear their appropriate school or PE uniform for the day.
Have fun with this, students, and show your WYIS school spirit!
